- My Rating: [C+], I gave it a (3.2 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Orange Avenue Wit – Coronado Brewing Company, 5.2% ABV, 1 pint 6 fl.oz., (Coronado, California, USA)
printed on the back of the bottle:
“This So-Cal take on a traditional witbier honors Coronado’s main street, which is home to our brewpub and was once lined with orange trees. Bolstered by orange zest, coriander and orange blossom honey, it’s Belgium by way of Coronado. Expect a refreshing, light-bodied brew rife with citrus zing and a hint of earthy spice. ”
- Style: (flavoured – orange zest, coriander, blossom honey) Witbier
- Where I got it : Legacy Liquor / Vancouver
- How much: $8.22 CAD (after 5% off) – 1 pt. 6 fl.oz., November 2015
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados:
Visual: (cellared for 2 years). Pours opaque orange with a massive slowly dissipating bubbly head, 1mm layer of retention, clusters of micro streams.
Nose: honeyed lager malt with orange overtones, semi-bright (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, full-CO2
Mid-palate: (lvl-4-sweetness), orange zest undertones, sweet wheat malt
Finish: subtle off-dry coriander, big honey exhale
Conclusion: A good integration of the 3 listed aromatics in balanced harmony. It is very drinkable but doesn’t leave much of a lingering impact as it is only light-medium in depth. Decent.
